"XYZ" is for....

Yellow bird
Today seems like the perfect day of the year to “leap” into the final installment of the Alphabe-Tour. Yes, three of the toughest letters are at the end of the alphabet, so I decided to combine them so there would be several things for you to zero-in on. I warn you that I had to get a little zany with “X” so……

“X” is for….

X-Stitch Mixer Cover
Notice that there’s an “X” in Mixer!!!

X-Design Coat Button
I know….. It’s a stretch…. Please be kind!

“Y” is for….


Yellow Harlequin Salt & Pepper Shakers

Yogi Bear

Yogi stands a proud 2" tall!

“Z” is for….

Zinc Lids

Z. S. & C. (Bavaria) Creamer

Zane Grey Book

That’s it! 
That’s the end of the Alphabe-Tour!
I’m actually sad that it’s over!
Maybe I should start over with “A”?

  3. You did it! That was so fun and creative! My favorite this time is the miXer cover...sweet cross stitch!
    Happy Leap Day!

  5. Sherry you did a great job with XYZ!! I'm so glad you will start over, I enjoy seeing your treasures! Love the Mixer cover, very cute!! Hugs, Linda

  6. Wonderful post! I love the cross stitch of course but Yogi, what a find!

  7. Love the X cross stitch and the Z zinc lids especially.

  8. You covered everything pretty well.

  9. The zink lids are the bomb!! I need some of those for my mason jars. The Zane Grey book is great, my Daddy read every one he could get his hands on!!

  14. You did a great job with the XY&Z!~Ames

  15. Whew! That was an Xtra tough one, Sherry! But I am super impressed that you managed all of the alphabet! Even Z!!

  16. Well you did such a great job at showing us so many wonderful vintage treasures via the alphabet that I am looking forward to a second round! And I loved all of todays fun finds. Thank you for sharing with all of us this week at ttf! Have a great weekend sherry!#

  17. Hi Sherry,
    Congratulatons...You finally made it to Z! Another round would be fun...or maybe numbers this time? Seeing your yardsticks made me wonder if yardsticks are getting expensive where you are too...they're crazy expensive least the older ones with advertising on them.
    Great post, as always!

  18. You have a LOVELY blog! So many wonderful vintage goodies to see. Love it here! Have a great day.

  19. You always have the cutest vintage goodies! I think it's absolutely back to "A"! Thank you for sharing at Potpourri Friday! I appreciate your participation!
